Color Studio Pro Blushes – Review & Swatches


Hello my blush-crazed beauties! Today I am very excited to share one of my favourite blush ranges of all times with you! Color Studio Pro blushes are among the first ones I ever tried so I wanted to get one of each basic shade. I got Pixie Pink, Natural Glow and Audacious Orange and later added Pinkify to my collection because it was just to pretty to ignore. I wanted the entire range but I found the last shade Havanna, loaded with a bit too much shimmer for my taste although the colour was great. Read on to discover why I love these blushes so much!


Product Claims

It is a velvety-smooth powder blush that enhances your natural beauty. Colour Studio Professional Pro Blush is a beauty essential suitable for every skin tone. Formulated for a long wearing cheek glow with a light weight application easily blends onto the skin. From matte to shimmer finishes, add an illuminating glow to your cheeks.

What Do I Think?

Okay, so for starters I am just so happy that the size and quantity is so great for the price. I know I sound cheap but this sort of generosity really pleases me. You get 13g of product for only 750PKR!  The packaging is pretty basic and I like that the lid is clear plastic allowing me to locate the shade I want easily as I have four of these. The product is pressed into a round black plastic base with a metallic pan and is quite sturdy and travel friendly. The cardboard box it comes packed in will be helpful for frequent travellers.

One swipe of my finger was enough to show me how pigmented these babies are. You don’t need much to begin with but you can build up the lighter colours if you wish. Even when I overdid the application for the face swatches, I found that I could easily remove the excess layer with a tissue paper without ruining my makeup. I was further impressed by the smooth silky texture that makes blending a piece of cake. The fallout is minimal and depends on what kind of brush you use and how you pick up the product. I suggest lightly swirling a rounded blush brush onto the pan’s surface because of the super soft texture of these blushes and tapping off the excess. In pleasant weather they lasted on my combination skin for around 4-5 hours before fading with just foundation underneath. Lasting power is similar for all and depends on heat, humidity, skin type and whether you are wearing foundation and setting powder underneath. The shimmer of Natural Glow and Audacious Orange is heavier and it remains on the skin even after the colour has faded away.      

Audacious Orange




This is an intense coral-orange shade with tons of micro-shimmer. It lights up the face with a gorgeous pop of colour on the cheeks and the shimmer adds glamour to any look. I prefer to use this for bold looks that lean towards coral, orange or peach or just for a fun everyday look keeping the eyes and lips simple.

Natural Glow




This is a light but by no means dull tan shade with micro shimmer that brightens up the face beautifully. This goes superbly with a heavy eye-bold lip look or a no-make up look because it just adds a hint of neutral colour to the cheeks along with a natural radiance. I would recommend this to pale-medium skinned ladies as a blush as it is readily buildable. Dark beauties will love it a pocket friendly highlighter I believe.

Pixie Pink




This is a delicate peachy-pink shade almost like a muted coral. There are scattered fine shimmery bits in the pan that serve to add a slight glow to the cheeks. It is a chameleon colour that appears peachier when I combine it with a peachy-coral look and pinker with pink lipstick, etc.

Pinkify




This is a bright red-toned pink that appears as a beautiful rosy pink on my cheeks. There is barely noticeable shimmer the pan, which doesn’t really show up on my cheeks. I love to use this to add a flush of colour to a neutral look or just compliment a pink-oriented look.

All in all these blushes are a great addition to any makeup collection and are very suitable for beginners and compliment a number of skin tones and looks.
